Jordan Springs Public School
Working with Richard Crookes Constructions, Jordan Springs Public School was a prototype hybrid construction – meaning the works were a combination of onsite and offsite construction. This construction method allowed the works to be completed in a more timely manner for the client – the NSW Department of Education. With a contract value in excess $1.5M, AKM Projects were engaged to complete the internal and external linings along with doors, frames and hardware for the Amenities blocks throughout the school and the Hall. We had extensive use of Supawood, perforated plasterboard and through-coloured CFC. That said, the most striking elements of our scope were the three covered outdoor learning areas (COLAs) that we were required to frame and sheet with prefinished Atkar plywood along with the skylights. These were completed at heights approaching 10m and finished with expressed joints and recessed, coffered bulkheads.
